I apologize for the lack of a Saturday post, my loyal blog followers; I was very much distracted by the thought of my first Saturday in Las Vegas. So much so in fact, that I was exhausted from being excited and ended up having a relaxing evening/weekend. In fact, the weekend, as a whole, was successful as it was both entertaining and fulfilling, hanging out with my new boss, co-workers and roommates.
It began with an evening at the CEO’s (Elliot Moskow) house, a beautiful home set up on the side of the mountains, with a gorgeous view of the Las Vegas strip, which, by the way, is an AMAZING sight to see from a distance at night. (As a side note, I feel I may be referencing the beauty of Las Vegas often, having grown up in a suburban setting with Detroit as my model for urban civilization, a phrase that takes on an indescribable meaning in Vegas.) After hanging around the Dr. Moskow’s in-house bar for a while, we decided to make a trek to a local casino/bar scene, Green Valley Ranch, which conveniently had a beer pong tourney in full swing that was instantly of interest. With my college skills still lubricated from use, I proceeded to beat a number of contestants until my $2 dollar pitcher was gone and it was time to move on.
The rest of the night was fantastically laid back, as we walked the surrounding area, talked shop, and returned to the house, where we were awoken to coffee and an amazing breakfast. The rest of the day was spent relaxing at the house and planning the Saturday night, which inevitable did not happen as we were too tired from a day in the sun. Having spent the entire day with my co-workers it gave me a real sense as to who I am working with and how each individual approaches work differently with a different attitude, an observation that will be spoken more about in the future I’m sure.
I now sit in my room at the desk reflecting on my first week/end in Las Vegas, NV as an Intern at Pricefalls.com and I have to admit, I feel like I belong. Whether it is because this city is so vibrant and pulsating with an energy I haven’t felt before, or because my co-workers and I have already clicked on a family like level, I can honestly say, the next few months are going to be fun, filled with inevitably as much work as play.
Until next time buyers, sellers, and friends!
